Shirley, VT Young Artists Blog: Gregory Pember

From Gregory Pember ("Jared" in SpeakEasy Stage Company's production ofBody Awareness):
It’s hard to imagine that in two weeks I will no longer be a part of this amazing show or working so intimately with this creative and supportive cast.  This show holds a very special place in my heart and always will because it is about the love of a family and every night we get to reshape and tell this family’s story.  It also holds a special place because I get to be back in Boston, a city that throughout my four years at the Conservatory I grew to call my “home away from home.”  I feel very comfortable in this city and it’s been so awesome to have the opportunity to reconnect with those at school who have supported me so much in the past.

The show has definitely changed some shape throughout these past three weeks of performances and it’s always interesting and fun to compare audiences’ reactions to the show from night to night.  Some nights the show seems to almost ride this tidal wave of laughter whilst other nights the audience is much more subdued and sensitive to the issues that the four of us are dealing with onstage.  This is one of the things I like most about the play: Annie Baker does not tell the audience how to feel and she allows them many opportunities to form their own opinions about the characters and the situations at hand.  This has also taught me not to rely on any consistent audience reactions when performing the show, which really keeps me on my toes as an actor.  It has also been cool to share our backstage with the cast of Circle Mirror Transformation and to get to know some of their cast and hear about their process and how audiences are reacting to their show.  It is a very exciting festival to be a part of and I look forward to actually being able to see the other two shows this week!  I am also looking forward to two talkbacks that are happening after the show this Sunday as well as after next Saturday’s matinee.  We’ve already had one actor-audience talkback and it was awesome!  It was such a great chance to connect with the audience after the show and hear about what they thought as well as answer any questions that they had for us.  Honestly, I would love to do a talkback after every performance!  I think it is such a gift to hear an audience’s perspective firsthand and immediately following the show when everything is still fresh in their minds.  I would love for people to come participate in the talkbacks after these shows and share your experience of the play with the cast!  Thank you to everyone who has come to support SpeakEasy and this show and it has been an honor performing in Boston again.  I can’t wait for these next two weeks of shows!  See you at the theater!

  4. Have you ever seen how glamorous the celebrities of Hollywood always look? Not only do these people seem to dress right and rarely get caught in paint stained sweats or without makeup, but they seem to look even better in all their get-ups even with out the polishing the movie artists add to them. Sun glasses manage to add something else to that sophisticated style and even add a little mystery.

All you need to create this costume is a tiara and a sash. You can either buy the sash at a costume store, or if you can sew, you can make it yourself. If you want to be super sexy, wear a bikini with the sash as if you were competing in the swimsuit portion of the competition. cheap online car insurance quotes free online car insurance quote

  6. I’ve got freelancers here in India, what I really want is a full time content writer in the office. If you know of anyone that might want to spend a year in India, even if just for some working experience, send them to me!Regarding doing a job you enjoy, if someone is in a job they don’t enjoy they need to take a long hard look at why they are doing it and why they aren’t doing something they enjoy. OK, if you want to be a writer or artist then you might have to do some crappy jobs till you get your break, but if you give up on your dream and ‘settle’ for something less than what you want then you’ve only got yourself to blame @Father: Aerospace Engineering was what I wanted to do at the time because it interested me (and still does). I didn’t do it because I thought it would lead to a higher salary. Similarly, I’m now working in IT (well, marketing in IT) and really enjoy what I do. I must do because I earn less than my little sister and moved to India – because it’s what I want to do, not because it pays more. where to buy prednisone
  7. on the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life walk, and in both cases, the communities they wrote about were located in places where the groundwater was contaminated with carcinogenic chemicals. These authors explored, in ways that Gup doesn’t, how the cancer walks provide the opportunity to talk about, and even imitate, the experience of cancer without ever talking about what causes it. (Each walker sets out on a challenging, ennobling “journey” just as each cancer patient does. And the finish line is victory.)More recently, a professor at an upstate NY community college wrote to me about a word/concept from New Guinea that seems to relevant to all this. The word is Mokita, which is defined as “the truth that everyone knows but no one wants to talk about openly. This unspoken truth is usually something unpleasant or unwelcome that will disrupt the social peace or bring perceived family embarrassment if brought into the open.” He said that came across it in a book called IN OTHER WORDS by Christophe J. Moore, in the chapter on indigenous languages. An interesting note about Gup: his grandfather was a Romanian Jewish immigrant who, during the Great Depression secretly gave money to needy families in Ohio at Christmas. Based on a stash of secret letters that he found, Ted wrote a wonderful book about his grandfather and the families that he anonymously and directly assisted. Basically, this old guy followed the advice in your blog’s last paragraph. In spades. With such a heroic ancestor as a point of philanthropic comparison, it’s no wonder that Gup finds the whole walking for cancer ritual a bit odd. But your analysis pulls back the curtain on the oddness even further. Brava, Barbara! (Walking for ALS! Oh, and then let’s have a bake sale for anorexia!) best credit card
